Last week BYU-I’s Center Stage presented Spanish Brass for all to hear. Spanish Brass, created in 1989 by five Spanish musicians, quickly gained recognition for their performances.
Carlos Beneto, one of the trumpet players, tells us the best part about preforming in front of an audience, “The best part is the challenge that it means everyday to play if you can a little better than yesterday. That’s what I love and just one minute before coming out you aren’t sure what is going to happen and well today was great because we had this wonderful hall, which is amazing to play and a very nice audience.”
Spanish Brass has given hundreds of concerts around the globe in various prestigious events and hopes to do so for a very long time.
Tuba player, Sergio Finca, goes on to say his hopes for the bands future, “Doing fantastic music like we do now it’s the only thing that I wish. That we keep going and having the same passion that we have now.”
With this being the last concert in the U.S. the musicians wanted to go out with a bang and greatly enjoyed the atmosphere they were emerged in here at BYU-I.
A member from the audience, Steve Wismer, said, “They are very talented musicians, you can tell that they’ve paid their dues on their instruments. They are able to execute musical ideas very well, they are able to express things that can be moving and they are able to touch the soul in a way that can only come from spending a lot of time practicing on a craft like that.
We hope to be entertained by more wonderful performances from numerous artists in the future. For more information about Spanish Brass visit their site at:
